Ginger Tea

Alternative title : Because sometimes a mug of hot ginger tea makes everything ok with the world. 

It’s been pointed out to me recently that I’m constantly on the go, be it Yoga classes, or Weights/Calisthenics, or Therapy sessions, or just visiting somewhere new … I seem to be unable to sit still! Once of a time I would have been content to spend time in my own company but recently my Mental Health hasn’t been easy to deal with and I’ve found myself needing more and more distractions. Which has resulted in burn out … Honestly, it’s catch-22 sometimes and a total learning curve with regards to what my body and mind need at any given moment.

So while feeling worse for wear in the midst of a lurgy bug (temperature all over the shop!) I took a few days out to just sit in front of the TV, recuperate and drink a lot of rejuvenating ginger tea.

Lettuce Entertain You

Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 26 …  Romaine Lettuce, Ginger, Pear and Coconut Water.

Ok folks, it’s day 26 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with “Lettuce Entertain You” … I have Yoga class tonight and seriously feel as though my get up and go and gotten up and gone! I think it’s just that Tuesday (Monday in disguise) feeling where it’s not the first day back at work after a glorious weekend, but it’s not halfway through the week either. It’s a filler day!

Surely it’s not just me that thinks that way about Tuesdays?

So, why Romaine Lettuce you ask? Well…

Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 24 … Watermelon, Carrot, Ginger and Coconut Water.

Ok folks, it’s day 24 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with “Build me up Buttercup” … How are you lovely lot spending your Sunday? Hiding in Pjs and watching movies? Catching up with the football? Spending time with loved ones? Working (bleh!)?

I’m off on a date with my other half today and I am so excited about it! Should I have thrown in a soppy warning before writing that sentence? Yeah? Ooops … My bad then folks!

The Yogi

Alternative title: #LHB_Juice_January Day 16 … Carrot, Pear, Ginger, Cucumber and Oat Milk  Juice.

Ok folks, it’s day 16 of #LHB_Juice_January and we’re kicking the day off with “The Yogi” Juice  … I suppose one of my main challenges for 2016 was to take Yoga more seriously. To push myself out of my comfort zone and spend more time with my Intermediate Instructor (she’s lovely but I spend a lot of time going “how the heck did she get her foot THERE?!”), to try the asanas which frightened the poop out of me (there are a lot of them) and to actually practice at home (which means actually bringing my mat in from the car). Yay Yoga!

Why Cucumber for this juice you ask? Well…
